I.

I am a normal senior student, my grades aren't that bad, nor that good, I have my bunch of friends, like every high school teenager, and people often tell me I'm pretty, though I don't really consider myself that way.

I arrived at school like always, and headed up to the lockers, Peach, one of my best friends, ran towards me excited squealing something, she was talking so fast I couldn't understand a word she was saying!

"Hey, halt a second Peach, what are you saying? I can't understand anything if you keep squealing."

"Sorry, I'm just too excited!"

"What happened?"

I closed my locker, grabbed my schoolbag and looked at Peach while we headed to the classroom. After I sat on my place, the last chair next to the window, Peach began talking again.

"I have to tell you!"

"Well do it, I'm not doing anything to avoid it."

"Well, yeah, sorry, guess I overdid myself."

"Yeah you kinda did."

"Anyway, you want to know what happened?"

"Yeah?"

Peach squealed again excitedly.

"Link asked me out!"

I shook my head in agreement and tried to smile at her by the news, Link was sort of my ex-boyfriend, we had a big argument and he dumped me. That was six months ago, I still cry whenever I think of it, yeah I know, I'm so pathetic...

"That's good Peach." I said, trying to sound honest, she noticed my false grin.

"If you don't want me to, I'll tell him I can't. I know he was your boyfriend..."

"Yeah but it's all right, don't worry."

"Sure? I don't want our friendship to be over you know."

"Yeah I'm fine, really, I hope you guys have a good time."

I smiled at her, this time it was honest, she smiled back and the bell rang. Peach ran over to her seat, next to Link, I gazed outside the window waiting for the teacher to arrive.

The classroom door opened, I felt my heart turn for a reason which I didn't find a valid reason and turned my face to see Samus Aran entering the classroom.

I blushed completely, this girl always gave me the chills, she was always so alone, yet, everyone wanted to be with her, she didn't allow it, and she was always looking kind of sad, though I can't really assure someone else noticed it.

The classroom was full already, she arrived late and the only place available was the one in front of mine, like I guessed, she took it, and as she sat I gazed stupidly at her long blonde hair swinging in her back with the wind's blow.

The teacher entered the classroom, excusing himself from being late, as always, and the class started.

I just heard the teacher babbling without actually getting a word he was saying, I felt very distracted as I watched Samus taking notes, looking down at her notebook, so lonely, yet so... pretty...

"Could I borrow a pen?"

Yeah... She was something worth admiring... Though, I don't think I should be feeling like this, after all, we're both girls and…

"Excuse me, are you listening to me?"

I turned my heaed immediatly to see Samus staring at me confused, I blushed completely and giggled a little nervous.

"Sorry, I was kind of distracted."

"I noticed." She said raising an eyebrow, I lowered my head ashamed. "I just wanted to know if you have a pen I could borrow."

I looked at her nervous, grabbed a pen from my case and handed it over to her, she noticed my hand trembling so she held it, I felt her warm hands caressing my own hand, and I suddenly saw a smile appearing in her lips.

"Relax, I'm not going to bite you." She added laughing; I couldn't help but to smile at her comment.

"Sorry..."

"It's okay."

We both stared at each other for a while, the bell suddenly rang and everyone stood up from their places, waltzing around the classroom, Peach was still chatting with Link. I sighed, Samus raised an eyebrow.

"What's up?" She asked trying to form a conversation, which actually surprised me, I never thought she'd speak to me.

"Well, it's just that, my best friend will date my ex-boyfriend, and I feel a little weird, that's all."

"I see."

She turned away from me, I gazed sadly at the floor and I heard her voice once more.

"Would you like to have lunch with me?"

"I'm sorry?"

"If you're not in the mood for hanging out with your friend, I was wondering if you wanted to come and have lunch with me."

I didn't actually say I didn't want to hang out with Peach but, the way she was asking me made me feel warm inside, like I couldn't just say no to her...

I nodded in agreement and smiled widely.

"I'll have lunch with you." I finally said, she smiled back at me.

"Thanks."

And she turned her head again when the bell rang announcing our next class. I didn't know if I was imagining it, but I swear I could see Samus smiling with her hand resting on her blushed cheeks.
